making due.



i have been reinventing my wardrobe so that i don't have to spend money on maternity clothes.  it just is not as much fun to shop for myself knowing that the clothes will fit for such a short time. i would much rather be shopping for baby! of course, there are a few cheaper pieces that i will pick-up for maternity, but mostly i am trying to make due with things i already own. so far so good! in fact, it has been really fun to discover pieces that i haven't given much thought to lately. including this dress. i have probably only worn once. this pregnancy dresses have been my friend! they are fuss free, non-restrciting, and somewhat forgiving. also, it looks like i got ready and tried to look good when i really didn't do anything.... these curls are 3 days old! shhhh don't tell.

Just saw your guest post on Holdenonbaby and wanted to stop by. I just had my first little boy and loved your style tips. I also agree with you on the maternity clothes. I don't think I bought a single one this time around and just stuck to wearing dresses from my loose dresses and skirts from my pre-pregnancy days. I just hate having to buy things that I will only wear for a month or two!

Awe I am so glad you came over to say hi to us!! Glad to hear I am not alone when it comes to maternity investments, I feel so much better knowing I am not the only one who put thought into that! Have a great day, sweetie!

It is a blessing that you don't have to buy pregnancy clothing. I did not fit in my normal clothing at all with my pregnancies, especially the first because I gained 60 pounds >.< I lost it all though eventually. What a very beautiful outfit this is.
